City Seeks Sculptors to Turn Student Art into Public Art Pieces
The City of Edina’s Arts & Culture Commission seeks artists to work with local students to construct a public art sculpture based on student artwork. Eighty grade-school students in the Edina School District participated in a student sculpture competition to create a 3-D sculpture that represents what Better Together means to them.
Judges selected eight winners, including:
- Alex Wyatt, fourth-grader at Concord Elementary, who submitted "School of Fish."
- Maddie Brinkman, Izzy Olson, Aurelia Offerdahl, and Abby Seaberg, fourth-graders at Concord Elementary, who submitted "Us Uniting."
- Esmé Bell, fifth-grader at Normandale Elementary, who submitted, "Better Together."
- J. Monty Zeis and Dylan Nordin, third-graders at Normandale Elementary, who submitted, "The Rainbow Mural."
- Audrey Davis, Luke Sullivan and Duncan Kluis, third- and fourth-graders at Countryside Elementary, who submitted "Let’s Work Together."
- Whitney Van Sloun, third-grader at Cornelia Elementary, who submitted "Blenderifous."
- Ethan Koch, third-grader at Creek Valley Elementary, who submitted "The Minnesota Sculpture."
- Zoe Kelman and Aheli Bardham, fifth-graders at Creek Valley Elementary, who submitted "Diversity Puzzle."
Winning pieces will be considered for reproduction as a public art sculpture in the City of Edina. Sculptors interested in participating should have experience building public sculptures, be able to work with children and be eager to share the Public Art Mission of the City of Edina.
